Long time, No Post

I know it has been forever but things have been so busy I just haven't had time to sit down and post anything.

I guess we will start with Easter. Easter was pretty relaxing down here. It rained all day and we were all tired from getting up so early for sunrise service (especially mommy who got home from the rodeo at 4:30am and then was up at 5:30am to get ready for church...won't do that next year, LOL) so we all took a nap and then went to Nana's for lunch. It was a nice, relaxing day. Noah of course loved the candy in his easter basket. It has caused quite a few time outs.... which by the way Jonas and I are starting to wonder if time out is working since Noah sings, laughs, ect. while in the "notty chair"??? LOL

Noah is very active so we always have a lot of funny stories. I will share a few.

The other day I was cleaning stalls and Noah was chasing the cats and just playing in the barn. He got awful quiet so I went and checked on him and he was sitting in the tack room eating a bag of horse treats. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "Eatin ookies mama, yum!"

Then in the bath tub the other day he decided that his train was a coffee mug and he was filling up the car with bath water and drinking it saying it was hot coffee, LOL.

His favorite thing to do is check the turtle traps in our ponds. We have two turtle traps to help control our turtle population because they eat the fish and fish food. We stocked our ponds with bass so Noah could fish this spring/summer. Although Mommy would prefer a catch and release program, Jonas and Popsey (Jonas' dad) don't quite agree. So when you ask Noah what you do with the turtles in the trap he says, "We smash em'", "Poor turtles"..... I am still working on a catch and release program, LOL

My barn kitty had 5 kittens yesterday. Noah is very excited and I feel sorry for these kittens when I finally turn Noah loose with them. Between horses, dogs and Noah I will be lucky if any of them survive. There are 2 all white ones and 3 gray ones. I couldn't get Noah to smile in this picture but it was hard enough trying to take the picture and make sure he didn't squeeze a hour old kitty to death, LOL.
